    My attmept at widening scope.

    Last friday an exhibition opened in the main gallery at the AA entitled First Works. I found it timely because I have been struggling for a while with the theme of the exhibition (outlined in the curatorial statement). The work on show in the exhibition, all done in the 60s and 70s, has an undeniable influence on the work being done today, but the question one has to ask (I think) is what exactly these influences are and how are they being expressed.

    Answering some of these questions would narrow add some specificity to an otherwise floating situation. Seeing all the work in one place (an amazing number of original drawings) is key in clearing up some of the confusion (my confusion).

    Come for a visit if you are around.

      Good work, model of Snowdon Aviary, designed by Cedric Price and Frank Newby.

      I personally admire engineers' contirbution to architecture. Samuely Felix and Frank Newby are my favorite.
